Important, informative and horribly enjoyable... adds to our understanding of 17th-century
theological disputes, the civil war, the class system, ecclesiology, local history
and the psychology of the iconoclast. ANTIQUARIES JOURNAL (Vol 81, 2002) Read review
in full (opens in new window).
A finely researched and well-documented picture of a key two-year campaign. SPAB
This wholly admirable book, factual reconstruction at its best. The contributors
have applied a magnifying glass to one of the most disturbing passages in English
history, which Catholics can only read about with pain and revulsion. CATHOLIC HERALD
A magnificent work of scholarship, beautifully produced, and emphatically not expensive
at £50. CROMWELLIANA
A formidable piece of historical scholarship... a pioneering study of both 'a solid
fanatic' and the role of iconoclasm in the godly reformation of the early 1640s.
